The Speed of Lightning, Susanoo was one of the new members of Night Raid that Najenda brought back from the Revolutionary Army HQ. He was an adept fighter and quite resilient to damage due to his status as a humanoid Teigu. He also served as Night Raid's housekeeper and aided Akame in Night Raid's daily chores as well as training with Tatsumi.
Susanoo is a tall man who looks in his late-20's with distinctive, bull/bison-like horns coming out of the sides of his head. He was always seen wearing a white robe.
Susanoo was a perfectionist who always noticed flaws in the others' appearance, even in the heat of a battle, as seen when he pointed out Desta-Ghoul's asymmetrical bones while fighting it. He always tried to fix such imperfections when he could, as seen with Tatsumi's shirt and Mine's hair. He was also quite straightforward and, while respectful towards his allies, had little understanding of human concepts, such as friendship; however, he was eventually able to develop bonds with his fellow Night Raid members.
Susanoo helped to save the members of Night Raid from Dr. Stylish after they were incapacitated by his poison attack. He is revealed to be a humanoid Teigu during his battle with Dr. Stylish after miraculously healing from otherwise fatal wounds sustained to his body by Dr. Stylish's exploding minions. Susanoo later assists Night Raid in taking down Stylish in his final monstrous form.
He had been inactive for an unknown period of time before awaking to Najenda. When asked for the reason why he awakened to her, he stated that she resembled his former master and added that he was a great general, much to Najenda's dismay and to Leone and Tatsumi's amusement.
During Night Raid's assassination attempt against Bolic, Susanoo like Najenda, Leone and Tatsumi were all overwhelmed by Esdeath, despite this, Bolic was still killed. When the group attempted to escape, Susanoo chose to stay and stall Esdeath until a complete retreat was made. Inevitably, Susanoo lost the fight when Esdeath used her Teigu trump card to freeze time and effectively kill him by destroying his core.
Equipment and Skills
Susanoo was a biological Teigu, and the first one shown in the form of a human being. Because of his nature as a Teigu, he is able to regenerate injuries as long as his core is not destroyed. He also seems to be immune to poisons and toxins that would kill ordinary warriors. He wields a stave-like weapon called Wolf Fang Mace with blades protruding from it and is extremely proficient in battle. He is also very adept at housework and cooking, assisting Akame in the daily chores at Night Raid's HQ.
Magatama Manifestation (禍魂顕現, Magatama Kengen, literally translated as "Evil Soul Manifestation"): Susanoo absorbs his user's life energy into the magatama on his chest to access a more powerful, armored form. While under the effects of Magatama Manifestation, his hair whitens, his horns turn black, and a disk appears on his back. His user will die after commanding him to use this move three times. He has several different abilities that only become usable in conjunction with his trump card.
- Yata no Kagami (八咫鏡, Yata no Kagami, literally translated as "Eight Span Mirror"): Susanoo uses the floating disk on his back to create a mirror which can reflect any kind of projectiles.
- Ame no Murakumo (天叢雲剣, Ame no Murakumo, literally meaning "Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven"): Susanoo generates a very long transparent sword from energy stored in the magatama. The sword has immense power, being capable of cutting Esdeath's multiple layered ice wall with ease.
- Yasakani no Magatama (八尺瓊勾玉, Yasakani no Magatama, literally translated as "Eight Shaku Curved Jewel"): Susanoo temporarily increases his speed and physical strength.
- Susanoo's name is a reference to the Shinto god, Susanoo.
- Susanoo's trump card Magatama Manifestation, as well as items Mirror of Yata and Ame no Murakumo are based on the Imperial Regalia of Japan.
- In the english dub of the anime, Yata no Kagami is called Eight Handed Mirror Shield, Ame no Murakumo is called Sacred Sword of the Heavens, and Yasakani no Magatama is called Celestial Treasure Magatama.
